It’s been a while since I participated in Saturday 9, but it seemed like fun today.

Saturday 9: Stormy Weather

1) Do noisy storms scare you? Not really. Sometimes the thunder’ll keep me awake at night, but that’s about it. I do worry when it’s super-windy ever since the one time we had a window open and it literally blew off and landed in the bushes.

2) Mother Winters tells us Lena Horne was considered one of the great beauties of the 1940s. Whom do you consider one of today’s most beautiful women? I really have no idea. And I decided that googling beautiful women was probably not worth my time

3) Crazy Sam admits it — there’s a big bag of recycling she really should take out to the bin. Yet she’s composing this meme. What should you be doing, instead of answering her questions? I should be doing dishes, but I don’t wanna.

4) Sam may be crazy, but she’s not stupid and will never waste her oney on Cialis, no matter how many unsolicited emails she receives! What’s the most recent addition to your spam folder? I actually went and looked. It was 10% off MLB photos

5) What was the last thing you cooked? I cooked a pinto bean and andouille sausage stew last night.

6) Do you remember the lyrics to your either your high school or college fight song? If so, please share a bit. No, I don’t remember, but whenever I think of our fight song “On Wisconsin” goes through my mind. It was the tune for the new high school that started the year after I graduated

7) “Samantha” is the feminine of “Samuel” and means “Listener.” What’s the derivation of your first name? When I looked it up it said it’s the feminine variation of Charles meaning “free man,” but it also comes from the actual word “carol” meaning a song, usually a song of joy, like Christmas carol.

8) Are you following the NBA or NHL this year? If so, which team are you rooting for? I’m not really a fan, but my husband roots for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

9) Gloves, umbrellas, sunglasses, keys — which of these do you misplace most often? Keys, probably because they’re the ones on the list I use the most often.
